has been apparently replaced by a digital copy. We where all set to go to Pet Smart for our annual photos with Santa when I called the store to check the time and was informed that this year they had a "virtual" Santa. Meaning they take your pet's picture and then photoshop Santa in! No thank you! I want a real Santa in my pictures. We decided not to make the 45 minute drive and just dressed the dogs up in their Christmas finery at home:
I wrapped up the cat and dog presents and put them in the stockings:
and we relaxed:
We where waiting for a visitor. My former co-workers dog is staying with us for two weeks over the Holidays. His name is Ollie and he has been here a few times, but not for several years. He seemed to fit in pretty easily:
In fact everyone is getting on so well that on Sunday we left them for a few hours. I dressed up in a vintage outfit that was a big departure from my usual a 1960s look with sparkly capri pants.
I still love my 1920s, 30s , ad 40s clothes, but as I get older I get more into the Kitschy fun looks of the 1950s and 60s. I think they suit my personality. Im turning 38 in March and so on the cusp of forty, but I think I'm getting less mature as I age. I can definitely see wearing more of these fun, kitschy looks as I enter my middle years.
We went out to one of my very favorite restaurants. BCDC Tofu house. It serves Korean soft tofu, which is a boiling pot of tofu and meat or seafood and vegetables. Its so delicious and comes with a plethora of pickles. I always order the seafood pancake too and am then totally stuffed:
Luckily the pants are very stretchy.
I'm still pretty annoyed about virtual Santa but overall it was a pretty perfect weekend.
